How to ignite your community's action and interest in making a difference that is!

Tim Weaver headshotJoin us on Thursday, November 19, at 1:00pm EST for the next Firewise Virtual Workshop with Lt. Tim Weaver of the Rapid City, South Dakota, Fire Department, as he shares how you can ignite community action and build trust in wildfire preparedness.

 

This “Ask an Expert” workshop will see Lt. Weaver share lessons learned for both the homeowner and local agency in Firewise and Fire Adapted Community concept efforts.  He will share his experience in gaining residential trust around wildfire mitigation requests, and his agency work with local officials in developing mitigation solutions.  

 

If you have a question about engaging neighbors in preparedness or building partnership with another local agency, this is your chance to "Ask an Expert".  Simply email your question to LDeaton@nfpa.org.  The top submissions will be highlighted and put to Lt. Weaver for answer in the workshop.

 

Registration for "How to Ignite Your Community - in Building Action and Trust for Preparedness" is now open.
